To the brazen thief that has stolen three “VOTE YES” for Marriage signs from our property in the past two weeks … be content. Our supply of “Vote Yes” signs has been exhausted.
Your boldness and illegal trespassing, however, has given me the courage (or annoyance?!) to write this letter — probably counteracting your hopes for less “VOTE YES” publicity. The number of readers here will far surpass the relatively small number of drivers meandering by our signs out here in the boondocks.
My question to you, Dear Sign Thief: If, in your mind, you have justified stealing legally displayed signs from private property as acceptable behavior; could it be possible that you’ve been blinded to other truths as well? Truths about marriage. Truths about the sanctity of human life. Truths about other vital moral absolutes?
Of course, only our Creator has the absolute authority to judge your actions, or mine ... and I humbly submit to His supreme guidance and ultimate, final authority.
Stealing is wrong. That is a truth most of us would agree upon. Maybe we’d all do well, in this confused day and age, to revisit basic truths taught to us by our forefathers.
For the rest of you reading this, please seriously consider the vital importance of the upcoming vote on the Marriage Amendment.
Marriage between anyone other than one man and one woman is a biological impossibility. It does not serve the greater good of our society. It cannot be redefined by shifting cultural values (or disrespectful persons willing to steal privately displayed signs).
Vote yes on the Marriage Amendment (A “non” vote is a “no” vote). It is the right thing to do.
